Plymouth Divorce Attorneys

Divorce is an important legal matter, the results of which will reverberate far into your and your children’s future. Obtaining fair divorce terms is critical to your ability to move forward into your post-divorce life with confidence. At Atticus Family Law, our experienced Plymouth divorce attorneys are dedicated to helping people navigate the divorce process successfully. 

Agreeing to Terms

The terms of your divorce will be unique to you and your divorcing spouse, but they will address all of the following issues (that apply):

  • The division of your marital property
  • Your child custody and parenting time arrangements
  • Child support 
  • Alimony

While you and your divorcing spouse may not see eye-to-eye on each of these issues or even on any of them, there are means available that may help you find a middle ground. If you’ve exhausted your ability to negotiate between yourselves, your respective divorce attorneys can negotiate on your behalf. There is also the option of mediation. The more terms for which you can reach an agreement together (regardless of how you get there), the fewer you’ll need the court to weigh in on. 

The Division of Your Marital Property

The division of marital property applies in every divorce, while the other issues may or may not apply in your case. Marital property is that property and those assets that you and your spouse took ownership of during the course of your marriage, regardless of who made the purchase or whose name is on the title. In the event of divorce, marital property is intended to be divided fairly, given the circumstances of the marriage. An exception to the marital property rule is that gifts and/or inheritances that one spouse receives in his or her name only remain his or hers alone. 

Complicating factors that tend to make the already difficult process of dividing marital property that much more difficult include:

  • Multiple property ownership
  • Business ownership
  • High assets

If you anticipate disputes regarding property division in your divorce, reach out to our Plymouth divorce attorneys for guidance.

Separate Property

That property that you and your spouse brought into the marriage with you – and that you keep separate – remains your separate property in the event of divorce. It is the nature of marriage, however, for finances to become entangled and for separate property to lose its separate nature. In other words, it’s complicated.  

Parenting Time and Child Support

Child custody concerns are a serious matter in divorces involving children. Child custody is divided into who makes important parenting decisions on behalf of the children and whom the children live with and according to what parenting time schedule. Both aspects of custody can be either joint or sole.


If one spouse will experience a financial downturn with the divorce and the other spouse has the financial means to help, the court may order alimony payments (spousal maintenance) for a specific amount and duration.
